is that just a nicer way of saying that he doesn't expect tempers to cool while he's in the white house? >> i think so. he said even before this, that you know, whenever the president himself put forward legislation, the president's words are republicans just don't want to support it because barack obama, you know, put it out there, and even on things that the president says that they have supported in the past, and this will be an interesting test with immigration, if he goes out very strong on that, whether republicans would be concerned he'd get the credit. i think there is an important point in the white house from some of the moves the president has made to sound himself with some of the key loyalists for the second term, chief of staff and other high-profile positions, it looks like the white house has tried sort of reaching across the aisle they think in the first term, didn't go well. republicans don't think they did enough, frankly that he's willing to compromise enough, and i think the white house is now saying we're going to double down on our strategy you saw during the election cycle, rally the public and sort of demand change that way and, you know, compromise with us or try to beat you, you know, with public opinion.
